TLH Route 500 pavement

I was talking to my BIL who lives in Labrador and he thinks the entire stretch from Lab City to Goose Bay has been paved this year. He could be wrong of course. Anyone know the status for sure? They have one foot of snow on the ground right now in case anyone is interested.

A shame but not the last road. Brisay (Trans Taiga) Rd puts you a long way inland. 666km and though I doubt if it will happen, there is talk of it being extended to Shefferville.

Agreed...to me the TT was way more "adv" than the Trans Lab. Both great roads but the TT had a way more out there feel to it.

I cant for the life of me find it but I saw a map with two more proposed roads. One leaving Radisson and heading north for what looked like 400-500km. A new dam if I am not mistaken. Likely just a proposal but who knows.

With the day of gravel on either end of that paved section of the Trans Lab I still think its a great adv trip

I hadn't heard of a Shefferville connection...would be cool if they did but you'd end up on a train with your bike and I have inquired before and they wont let you get your bike off anywhere but at the end of the line on the St Lawrence....I pleaded and was laughed at

When I rode through in early September there was only a 60km section outside of Churchill Falls towards Goose that was left, and they were working fast to finish it, so I'd believe it's all paved now.

Still gonna be awhile before its complete from Goose to Red Bay. 538km of gravel.

I also think it will be awhile before the 60 or so km from Fermont to Fire Lake is done. That's a narrow road in places.
